Life of an Entrepreneur

Sharing is caring!

Selling gemstones online is so fun, it’s a side hustle that really fired up my love for shopping imagination. It’s amazing how much the store has grown. I wish I could offer customization services but that will be the future of the brand. What I didn’t expect is that my store would lead to a new business.

Well, the idea has been at the back of my mind but I never really took it seriously until my husband needed more work. Despite the pandemic and all, we opened a new business.

I didn’t really think that our new venture would take me places but it did. Every week, we’re on a road trip going from one supplier to the next. I like it although traveling is still tricky these days.

So far, the business is growing. We’re now getting more orders online and via our physical stores. The earnings are still fluctuating but it’s rare for us not to get at least one sale these days. I spend my days between this shop and my online shop while also working as a writer. It’s amazing how many things I could accomplish in a day, let me tell ya.

I still have so many ideas. My plan is to build another business two years after this one. My goal is to manage several businesses by the time I hit 45 without quitting some of my online gigs!
